Students and Faculty at Stout Retain
an Active Concern for Ecology Through
Activities in and Outside the Classroom
by Bill Mikalson
A Stout student uses laboratory facilities to study an environmental problem.
Various activities, both in and out of the classroom, are focusing on environmental
concern at Stout.
Each day, technology advances
by leaps and bounds. And each
day, the ecological imbalance
grows in direct proportion. Yet,
concern for the problem appears
to continue trudging through a
mire of disbelief and disinterest.
Such is not the case at Stout
State University. Here, many
students and faculty are combin-
ing their efforts in search of con-
crete solutions to the ever mount-
ing number of environment re-
Through combined efforts, the
Stout Environmental Council
(SEC) transforms the active
concern of individuals into the
meaningful action of a group.
According to Ed Gold, assistant
professor of chemistry and SEC
officer, "Council interests range
from expressing strong opposi-
tion to the Sanguine Project,
which threatens the ecology of
northern Wisconsin by estab-
lishing a large underground an-
tenna for the Navy, to the es-
tablishment of environmental
The environmental crisis is not
a new problem. Then, why has
its critical nature just come to
light ? According to E. M. Lowry,
professor of biology and SEC of-
ficer, it hasn't. "People have been
telling us," he said. "Aldo Leo-
pold, Paul B. Sears, and William
Vogt, for example, have been
forecasting the crisis for years
in speeches, articles and books.
It seemed that, not until Rachel
Carson wrote "Silent Spring,"
did people stop to listen. Two
years ago people laughed at Sen.
Gaylord Nelson and his con-
cern for the environment. Now,
\ . \
George Nelson, associate professor of
biology, is one of the concerned.
Nelson, Ralph Nader, Paul Ehr-
lich and others have become the
prophets of the crisis."
The Stout Environmental
Council was initially conceived
to conduct educational activities
related to the environmental
crisis during Student Week '70,
a period set aside to pursue in-
dividual interests ; and on Earth
Day '70. According to Courtney
Nystuen, assistant professor of
industrial graphics, "The goal
was to sensitize the university
community to the problems that
beset our environment and their
potential solutions. That goal re-
mains," he continued, "The edu-
cational effort did not end on
Apr. 22. A second purpose grew
out of the pursuit of the educa-
tional objective: meaningful ac-
tion — to begin to inventory the
detrimental effects of Stout's
total operation on the environ-
ment and then to take appropri-
ate remedial action in a rational
and concerted effort."
Meaningful action has become
a key term. Student-faculty pro-
jects now continue on a year-long
basis. One group, for example,
took water samples from the
Red Cedar River to determine
the bacterial count, dissolved
oxygen content, temperature,
and pH (relative acidity and al-
kaline). Another project anal-
yzed the air in Menomonie to de-
termine the degree of radio-ac-
tive materials present. Still an-
other student-faculty team has
been working to determine the
major source of phosphate pollu-
tion in Lake Menomin.
SEC efforts are continually
broadening and have now found
their way into Stout's curricu-
lum. "Project Approach to Chem-
istry," taught by Donald F. Clau-
sen, professor of chemistry, is
one example. "Here," Gold ex-
plained, "students learn basic
chemistry by choosing an area
that interests them and working
out related chemistry projects.
Each semester, students choose
projects related to air sampling,
water pollution or other subjects
lending themselves to research.
They tackle these projects in a
practical, intensive and original
A current addition to Stout's
curriculum is an environmental
course offered by Donald A. Dick-
mann, associate professor of
biology. Student empathy was
reflected by the fact that the
course was quickly overfilled.
Another new course, entitled
"Environmental Problems : Ur-
ban De-Development," was held
during a special two-week session
at the Christmas break. Team
taught by Charles Krueger and
Courtney Nystuen, graphic com-
munications department, the
course dealt with energy and
resource consumption. "The
amount of resources our nation
is consuming is not compatible
with the restricted environment
available," Krueger warned.
"Even more critical is the rate of
resource consumption compared
to the amount of resources
The course was divided into
three phases : One phase pro-
vided discussion for students, in-
structors and outside consul-
tants ; phase two involved form-
ulating a problem; and phase
three centered on a writing team
working in a specific geographi-
cal area to solve a previously
With the growing student in-
terest, the SEC hopes that en-
vironment related courses can be
extended to other departments.
"Environmental courses," said
Gold, "have to combine different
subjects because environmental
problems such as pollution and
population growth involve science
and human beings. We should
aim to equip students with the
knowledge and experience neces-
sary to deal effectively with en-
Speaking for the SEC, Gold
summarized the reasons that the
environmental crisis has reached
a crucial stage and can no longer
be ignored. "The question before
us now is that of human survival.
We must begin to see our small
earth for what it really is — a
tiny eco-system, with limited
amounts of air, water and other
"Up until now," he continued,
"mankind has generally ignored
the mounting evidence that our
path toward ecological disaster
is in danger of becoming irrever-
sible. We need a long term mas-
sive effort to roll back pollution
at its roots and to completely re-

A change in assignment from Chancellor to Dis-
tinguished Professor for William J. Micheels at Stout
was approved Feb. 11 by the Board of Regents for
the new University of Wisconsin System. John C.
Weaver, system president, recommended the change
at the request of Micheels for reasons of health. It
is effective April 1.
Micheels' title was changed from President to
Chancellor earlier this year, along with the titles of
the Presidents at the eight other former Wisconsin
State Universities. The purpose of the change was
to provide uniform titles for all university heads
within the System. The heads of universities in the
old UW System had been known as Chancellors,
Micheels, 61, had been recuperating from brain
surgery which followed a stroke he suffered in Nov-
ember. He was hospitalized during December, spent
January at his home and left Feb. 1 to spend a month
in California convalescing.
The change in assignment was recommended by
Vice-Pres. Robert W. Winter, in charge of the former
State Universities System, who said :
"Based on the opinion of his physicians, and with
the relief from administrative pressures as Chancel-
lor at the University, Dr. Micheels should be able to
assume a very productive role for the University . . .
in teaching and other related services."
The Regents authorized a search and screen
process to select a new Chancellor for Stout. Dr.
Ralph Iverson is to continue as Acting Chancellor
until Micheels' successor is appointed.
The Board also passed a resolution commending ,
Micheels for his years of service at Stout. The reso- '
lution pointed to the growth the University exper-
ienced under his leadership and how the University's
nation-wide and world-wide reputation increased. "Be
it resolved," the resolution read, "that on the occasion .
of his resignation as Chancellor and appointed as Dis-
tinguished Professor, the members of the Board com-
mend him for his contributions to the people of Wis-
consin and wish him and his devoted wife, Betty, .
much happiness and good health in the years to
A native of Menomonie, Micheels was graduated
from The Stout Institute and earned Master of Sci-
ence and Doctor of Philosophy degrees at the Uni- ■
versity of Minnesota.
For Vocational Grads
The Door's Still Open
Until a few years ago there
was only one way a technical
school student could obtain a
four year college degree: to en-
roll in college as a freshman and
to take four years of work toward
a Bachelor's degree, the same as
recent high school graduates.
Now, however, many technical
school graduates in Wisconsin
have the opportunity to apply
some or all the credit they earn
toward a college degree at cer-
tain institutions. The first Wis-
consin university to use this
practice was Stout State where,
since the inception of the pro-
gram in 1964, more than 580
technical school students have
According to Richard Lowery,
assistant director of Admissions,
Stout now accepts credit from
16 technical schools in Wiscon-
sin, all of whom offer two year
Associate Arts degrees. Credits
are accepted if they are earned
as part of the associate degree
program and if they apply to
similar subjects offered at the
University. This means that
many people with two year tech-
nical degrees can enter Stout as
Lowery pointed out that cre-
dits " transferred from technical
institutes are given provisional
approval and are withdrawn if a
student does not perform satis-
factory work at the University.
However, he added that it is rare
that the University must with-
draw approval because of poor
performance by a student. "Most
of these students would have
been eligible to enroll in college
as freshmen," he sard. "This is
definitely not a lower grade stu-
dent." Statistics from the last
seven years show that only five
percent of the technical school
students enrolled at Stout are
dismissed for academic failure.
Acceptance of technical school
credits is not an attempt to turn
technical schools into junior col-
leges, according to Lowery.
"Technical schools should not be
in the business of preparing stu-
dents for college," he said. "But
we want to give technical school
graduates credit for what they
Stout began accepting credit
from various technical schools
in Wisconsin after extensive
studies of these institutions to
determine if their courses satis-
fied the requirements of certain
courses offered at the University.
Several other state-supported
universities in Wisconsin now
have similar policies for credit
Technical majors attract most
of these students, with industrial
technology and industrial educa-
tion heading the list. Other popu-
lar programs for technical school
transfer students are technical
education, marketing and distri-
butive education, industrial-voca-
tional education, business admin-
istration, hotel and restaurant
management and home econ-
Transfers from technical
schools have increased nearly
every year at Stout, starting
with nine new enrollees in 1964
and ranging to 139 new transfer
students this year.
During Christmas Break: A "Mini™ Session"
Education facilities, as a
matter of tradition, lie in
disuse during various parts
of the year for vacations,
holidays and "breaks." In-
deed, the practice has been
in effect at every level, pro-
bably since formal education
began. But does the tradi-
tional system of semesters
and vacation periods best
serve education today ?
Officials at Stout believe
that it may not. To explore
the possibility of year round
operation, a "mini-session"
was conducted over the
Christmas break at Stout.
Normally the break has
been two weeks in length.
However, under a new cal-
endar adopted by eight of
the nine former state uni-
versities, the first semester
now ends prior to Christ-
mas, thus giving students
a three week break between
semesters. - .
The new calendar had
some obvious advantages :
Under the old system, stu-
dents living a great dis-
tance from Menomonie were
required to pack off for the
Christmas holidays, return
to school for two weeks of
classes and tests, and then
leave for home again during
the semester break. Stu-
dents living in residence
halls found this particularly
difficult. Combining the
Christmas holiday and sem-
ester break eased this pro-
At the same time, how-
ever, it meant that Univer-
sity facilities would be
closed for an extensive per-
iod. Therefore, to give in-
terested students an oppor-
tunity to continue their ed-
ucation during the break, a
two week "mini-session"
was offered at Stout, Jan.
3-13. The session consisted
of 13 one and two credit
courses, with a total enroll-
ment of about 200 students.
Featured during the per-
iod were regular courses of-
fered during the academic
year, plus courses especial-
ly designed for the session.
Offered through the Office
of Continuing Education at
Stout, it permitted students
to spend a concentrated
period on a single subject.
Under Board of Eegent
policy, one credit was
awarded for each week of
work. However, students
could take one two week
course or two consecutive
one week courses. The
courses occupied the same
status as those offered dur-
ing the regular year.
Reaction to the plan was
highly favorable and a
similar session is being
planned for the end of the
Wesley Face, vice-presi-
dent for Academic Affairs,
sees the session as a step
toward operating the Uni-
versity throughout the year
with courses that range in
length from one to 52 weeks,

Facing a changing and expanding technology,
education — like most of our other social institu-
tions — is becoming more complex. New and inno-
vative means of instruction are invading the class-
room, along with more efficient and effective teach-
One of the areas at Stout which services these
new methods of education is Learning Resources. It
incorporates traditional library and audio-visual cen-
ter facilities with new ways of storing and present-
ing instructional material and information.
The services it offers range from cataloging and
storing library materials to providing film and grap-
hics to aid instruction. It encompasses film, audio
and television productions for classroom use, main-
tenance of various equipment and operation of self-
instruction facilities. The extent of educational ma-
terials and instructional media used in Learning Re-
sources leads to a variety of facilities, a few of which

Planning to attend the American Home Economics
Association convention in Detroit in June ? A recep-
tion for Stout alumni attending the convention will
be held on Tuesday, June 27, from 5 :30 to 7 p.m., at
one of the convention hotels. (Location will be an-
nounced in the convention program.) Drop in and say
"hello" to Jane Rosenthal, Home Economics Dean
Tony Samenfink, and others from Stout past and
Stout present. You will also be able to see the new
Stout Home Economics slide series now in production.
This year's Homecoming will be held the weekend
of Oct. 7. We play Stevens Point. The Saturday
night reunion dinner will honor the classes of 1947,
1962 and 1967, and alumni will have "beer and sand-
wiches" together Friday night. There will be plenty
to do, so save the first weekend in October for 'your
fall outing and visit back to the campus. You will be
notified of ticket availability at a later date.
A total of 1,689 students received degrees from
Stout in 1971, a one-year record that should stand
for some time. Because we changed to a new calendar
that ended the first semester of the 1971-72 school
year before Christmas, we had four — yes, four —
commencements in 1971 : 241 graduated in January,
878 in May, 270 in August, and 300 in December. Each
new graduate is given a year's free membership in
the Stout Alumni Association. We hope those who
have had these free memberships will continue to be
active, dues-paying members. We need their support
to continue many alumni services and programs.

not, poor students financially." When you recom-
mend Stout to a prospective student, keep in mind
the fact that the student may need considerable en-
couragement and assistance from you just to get
through the process of getting enrolled. If you
really want to help a young person get into the right

he explained, "wars of mass des-
truction, pollution, overpopula-
tion and the depletion of our na-
tural resources. It is essential
that we tackle all of these prob-
lem areas if we expect our grand-
children to inherit a liveable
world. The environmental crisis
is a challenge, but it is also an op-
portunity to save ourselves by
saving the only world we have."

Seeking his third straight
Wisconsin State University. Con-
ference wrestling title this year
is Dale Evans, a 134 pound junior
from Windsor, Wis.
In contrast to his aggressive-
ness on the mat, Dale is describ-
ed by Coach Sten Pierce as a
"humble, mild-mannered, soft-
spoken, shy and bashful appear-
ing person who is very coachable
and involves himself mentally
and physically the year round.
This is the key to his success."
"He is the first wrestler that
I have coached that doesn't be-
come stymied with whatever he
faces with an opponent." Pierce
added, "He always has a move
that will counter or neutralize an
opponent's move. He never pan-
ics — a cool competitor under
"Dale was not a blue chip
wrestler in high school," said
Pierce. "He is a late comer and
those are the best. His exper-
ience is vast."
Coach Pierce compares Evans
to another Stout great, John
Peterson (71), who also did little
in high school but went on to win
three conference championships
as a Blue Devil in the 167 pound
class. Peterson placed fifth in
the Nationals and wrestled with
the U.S. team in the World
Wrestling Tournament in Sophia,
Bulgaria, in the 185 class.
Evans, who is very active in
amateur free - style wrestling
along with Peterson, will try out
for the U.S. Olympic team.
In a 16 team meet at St. Cloud,
Evans pinned three of four op-
ponents, the final man in 54 se-
conds for first place. During the
meet, he. had no match points
scored against him.
At the Northern Iowa Open
Tournament at Cedar Falls, Dale-
out of 45 wrestlers in his class-
met his brother Steve, a fresh-
man at the University of Wis-
consin - Madison, for the first-
place match. They decided they
would not wrestle each other and
met on the mat only to shake
hands and walk off with the first
and second place metals.
Evans, who has compiled a
143-33-1 record since his fresh-
man year in high school, prefers
wrestling to the many other
sports he competed in because
of the definite one-to-one situa-
"It's like boxing," said Evans,
"man against man with no third
factor. As far as strategy is con-
cerned, it's all action-reaction.
You attack all opponents the
same, but they all will react dif-
ferently. I'm 5-7, but in my class
I've faced guys 5-4 and 6-0; and
you have to keep going at him
until he questions your move.
That's when you know you have
Peterson has been making
headlines since his graduation
from Stout. Recently, he was
selected to an American team to
wrestle a group of touring Rus-
sian Olympic stars at Kent, Ohio.
Wrestling at about 190 pounds,
Peterson has been participating
in major meets around the coun-
try. He intends to try out for
the U.S. Olympic team and is ex-
pected to make a strong bid. He
was a three-time WSU Confer-
ence champion while at Stout.
